Mike Krzyzewski moved one victory from 1,000 for his Hall of Fame career in No. 5 Duke's 79-65 win over visiting Pittsburgh on Monday night.
Freshman Tyus Jones matched a season high with 22 points for the Blue Devils (16-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Coach K improved to 999-308 during his 40-year career. His first chance to become the first men's coach in Division I history to reach four figures comes Sunday against St. John's in Madison Square Garden.
